Character Analysis

(Avoiding Spoilers)

Overview... a bear with an easy-breezy life philosophy. Baloo lives a thriving bachelor life deep in the jungles of India. As long as he has honey and a place to nap, he’s a happy bear. Though Baloo generally prefers to live alone, he quickly takes to a curious young “man cub” named Mowgli, who is trying to figure out where he belongs. Baloo takes Mowgli under his wing, teaching the young human everything he knows about jungle life.

Personality... laid-back, fun-loving, and more caring than he lets on. Baloo believes the best way to live life is to take care of the bare necessities and forget about worry or strife. At first glance he might seem lazy, immature, or even a little selfish. But beneath his carefree exterior, Baloo has a huge heart. He’s deeply protective of those he cares about and he would do anything for his friends.
